    Pros

    Good pay, good team, good hours. It's a great place to work if you like being respected [most of the time...] by your customers.

    Cons

    When the shop is dead, the day will drag. When the shop is dead, and there is no POS to change.. it will REALLY drag.

    Advice to Management

    If the management can talk the talk, they better walk the walk. One of the biggest issues I had, was my managers aggravation with the lack of sales - when he couldn't sell himself.

    Pros

    Orange is a global company, very innovative we work on cutting edge technology. Very confortable atmosphere to work in. The lab has a unique history and now appears to be more insightful about the skillsets that are needed to become a world reknowned lab and they are moving to that end.

    They are a very stable company and are still on track for paying bonuses and merit increases which is very positive since many companies doing this economic down turn cannot financially afford to do this.

    Cons

    France Telecom does offer mobility and career advancement but you have to be willing to move to Europe.

    Getting approvals from the parent company in France can be timely and unfortunately we all have to suffer because of the timeliness issue which is quite normal for companies who have there parent company in another country..

    Some of the downsides are that many of the employees there have worked there for some time and have adopted very negative demotivating attitudes that unfortunately effect the morale of others..

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more with staff by having more frequent meetings
